Where is your iPhone produced? And by whom? Who was Steve Jobs – really?
And can the story of Steve Jobs’ life and Mike Daisey’s journey to a secret factory in China (the size of a city) tell us something about who we have become?
In the monologue The Agony and The Ecstasy of Steve Jobs the American playwright, activist and journalist Mike Daisey relates his shocking journey to the factory where Apple manufactures all its products. The strattling revelations from China are interwoven with the story of Steve Jobs’ life, a story that is largely synonymous with the history of the personal computer. Through Mike Daisey´s comic point of view we meet maybe ourselves at the door, as he shows us how technology has taken over our lives. Is it our best friend or our worst enemy?
Renowned actor and playwright Kate Pendry will be reading the text in the original language.
